Item description for Longing for Running Water (Biblical Reflections on Ministry) by Ivone Gebara & David Molineaux...

This short reflection documents Gebara's dawning awarness, as a lifelong city dweller, of how interwined are the tarnished enviroment around her and the poverty taht afflicts her nrighbors. From these experiances she creates a gritty urban ecofeminism and in this book articulates a whole worldview. Here she proposes "a new relationship with the earth and with the entire cosmos."

Reviews - What do customers think about Longing for Running Water (Biblical Reflections on Ministry)?

A Critical Voice  Dec 5, 2007
Brilliant marriage of eco-feminism and liberation theology, from one of Latin America's greatest theologians. A must-read for any serious student of theology, or lay person with an interest in these critical issues.
"new universe" pantheism  Jun 7, 2005
In the 1970s and 1980s, feminist theologians offered some necessary and powerful critiques of both the patriarchal nature of the Bible and of historical Christianity, especially of the Roman Catholic Church. While grappling with the tradition, each needed to determine whether to "retrieve" the tradition (e.g., Elisabeth Schussler-Fiorenza) or to move "beyond" it (e.g., Mary Daly).

Gebara, although a member of a Catholic religious community in Brazil, clearly places herself in the latter category. Sadly, she does this not with a clear and strong critique, but with a weak form of pantheism that flows out of the "new universe" movement of people like Thomas Berry and Brian Schwimme. Sad, because both the ancient Israelites and Jesus of Nazareth had great reverence for Creation, but expressed it by recognizing the Presence and power of the Creator, intimately available as Father/Mother. Gebara would substitute "the Sacred Body" of earth and proclaim "we must save one another."

If you are interested in New Age self-help, you might enjoy this book. But if you're looking for theology in a woman's voice that engages the Christian tradition on behalf of the world's poor, look somewhere else, like to the now classic writings of Catholic Worker founder Dorothy Day.
